Register now and pick up a free copy of the book being discussed. Everyone registered will be able to participate in an activity and enjoy a snack based on the story.
What's Your Favorite Children's Book?
The kids have spoken. Now the top 16 favorite titles that you voted for will face off to decide which book will reign supreme. Don't forget to visit the library each week to vote and see which book will move on towards the finals. Remember, only one book can be named Champion...you be the judge!
Learning to read begins before your child starts school. The 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten ongoing program encourages you to read 1,000 books to your child before he or she enters kindergarten. Just read three books a day for one year and it will add up to over 1,000 books!
The guidelines are simple: Read together and write down the book titles in your reading log you received when you signed up. After every 100 books read, bring your reading log to the library so we can reward your child with a sticker or a prize and pick up the next reading log sheets. After finishing 1,000 books, your child will receive a book of their choosing to keep and a certificate! This program has no end date except when your child enters kindergarten.
